Vick as starting QB familiar for Jets' Mornhinweg

BY foxsports • October 30, 2014

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) Marty Mornhinweg has seen it all before from Michael Vick.

The flicks of the wrist that rocket footballs downfield 50-plus yards with ease.

The pretty spirals.

The video game-like elusiveness.

The New York Jets offensive coordinator hopes to see it all again. At least for one more game: Sunday at Kansas City.

With Geno Smith benched after struggling through a dismal first half of the season, Vick is getting his first start as the Jets' quarterback against the Chiefs.

It will be the 34-year-old Vick's first regular-season start in just over a year, when he was still with Philadelphia. It's also the first time Mornhinweg is drawing up a game plan with Vick as his starting quarterback since the end of the 2012 season - when they were both with the Eagles.
